Junior Team Tennis

We wrapped our JTT Beginner League at the Columbia Tennis Center Friday, May 12 with tennis games and a pizza party This season we had two divisions, Orange and Green Dot ball. Each match-day Friday we had on average 50 players attending. We tried something new this season with the players all meeting at one facility. The green dot players were organized and overseen by CTC pro Jeff Kefalos. They played traditional tennis with singles,doubles and mixed. The orange ball players were broken up into skill levels to play traditional singles and doubles or doubles with rallying for points. We had great parent participation on the courts which helped things run very smoothly. The kids really enjoyed it and so much improvement was made each week in their abilities.

We had teams from the Columbia Tennis Center, Greenview Park, The Rockbridge Club, Spring Valley Country Club and Old Woodlands Park. I want to thank all the parents who were flexible and going with the new format and one facilty. Many thanks to my pros Jeff Kefalos (CTC), Brian Clark (Spring Valley) and Domino Boulware ( Greenview Park) and Carlos Lozano ( Rockbridge Club) for fully supporting our beginners and trying something a bit different this season, plus Jim Hinson at Wildewood for being the CTL's long term supporter of JTT. Also many thanks to my two parent coaches Melanie Michel and Paige Haas who ran their weekly practices and for coming every Friday to help with the orange ball players and make it a great time for them.

A huge thank you to the Columbia Tennis League and their board for ALWAYS supporting JTT and giving me the green light to do and try anything to help more kids play tennis.

The Columbia Tennis League welcomes all people who play, watch, support or enjoy the game of tennis into our events, programs, membership and leadership and will not discriminate against any person on the basis of age, sex, race, ethnicity, creed, sexual orientation, color, physical condition or national origin.  Moreover, we believe that the growth of tennis hinges on effective outreach to groups that have not traditionally been heavily involved in the sport and we will actively solicit and support the participation of such groups.
